As in the title this is the AVERAGE 17 year old, if you've been power lifting for 5 years then you need not reply...

I will be refferring to the bench press and the squat as these are the biggest power moves... Ie someone who can squat heavy is going to be stronger then someone who can bicep curl heavy... correct?!!

So im 17 i currently weigh 81kg Ive only been hitting my new gym (rugby gym that is predominently weights) for about 5 weeks, ive been hitting it regularly. And on a normal day i will only work legs by squatting, calf raises and lunges, and supersetting pecs and back. By Dumbbell bench pressing and lat pull downs. I will then work arms, shoulders etc on other days of the week...

Squat, 2 rep max at 100kg
Dumbbell bench press 5 reps at 30kg each arm (i never have a spot so i dont do barbell)

Im normally the youngest in the gym, so i cant really compare my self with all of these much older heavy lifters, so any advice willl be helpful
Just take 30g of creatine (natty dbol) per day n you'll be a muscle god in no time

This thread is 4 years old, I'm sure if OP has been training he's made some great gains by now and doesn't need your terrible advice (30g a day? Have fun with your chronic GI distress lol).

Those are some impressive numbers for a beginner. When I was 17 I had been training for about 10 months, had 120kg bench and a 200kg deadlift but i had to work a lot for it

As you are beginner you should avoid heavy weight lifting it will cause your lower back pain.and if you do the heavy bicep curl it will effect on your muscle growth because you are so younger and begginer.you should take lightweight to free your muscle then you can take the havy weight.

I am 17 year old and i have been going to gym for 1 month now
These are my 1RM
Benchpress=100kg
Squat=150kg
Deadlift= 145kg
I think for average 17 year old, its at least 60kg on benchpress, 90kg squat and 90kg on deadlift.
